On December 14, US Marshals in Ohio arrested Denis Eugene White (DOB 9/15/60) following an SCSO investigation into sexual battery.
On October 9, 2023, investigators from the SCSO Special Victims Unit received information that White had sexually battered a juvenile relative while they were both living in Sarasota in 2020. During the investigation, it was learned that White had multiple allegations from several other juvenile family members that spanned several jurisdictions in Ohio. SCSO SVU detectives were able to establish probable cause based on extensive reviews of forensic interviews to charge White with Sexual Battery of a Child as well as Lewd or Lascivious Molestation.
SCSO thanks our federal partners at the US Marshals Service for tracking White down. Our SVU detectives are tasked with investigating challenging and sensitive cases with meticulous detail. They work passionately to bring justice to the victims of these heinous crimes.
